Twitter Profile Page is Changing. Here’s 4 Reasons You Should Care.

Twitter is changing its profile page, as announced on their blog. The main changes Twitter is making are:

  • Best Tweets: Tweets that have received more engagement will appear slightly larger, so your best content is easy to find.
  • Pinned Tweet: Pin one of your Tweets to the top of your page, so it’s easy for your followers to see what you’re all about.
  • Filtered Tweets: Now you can choose which timeline to view when checking out other profiles. Select from these options: Tweets, Tweets with photos/videos, or Tweets and replies.

Visually you’ll find a much bigger profile photo you can use – mimicking Facebook’s profile pages.

  • Pictures and video rule in social
  • Engagement is priceless – thoughtless Tweets are no longer acceptable; every Tweet matters
  • Twitter is not just for geeks, but for more main stream communication
  • Keep using Facebook, it’s great, but don’t ignore Twitter. Explore it.

    Ramon do you think that the changes that Twitter is making will be good for Twitter users, or do you think that they are just trying to capture some of the magic that Facebook has, and it will have little effect on Twitter users?

    Hi Ramon, Twitter had given 76% as the percentage of monthly active users that are on Mobile. I’m not sure some of these look & feel changes will be transferable to mobile. What’s your take on this? Should their approach to mobile users be entirely different?

      That’s a great and very valid point u raise. I believe that through the twitter app and a properly mobile optimized Web page, the mobile experience will be awesome
